Working with metal is always magical. For the Cosmic collection we play with both shapes and patina finishes. The aim was to achieve terrestrial, possibly extra-terrestrial imitations of surfaces, and planet-like appearances. These textures, imaginary imagery and actual alchemy formed the basis of our inspiration.
Reflector plates are first shaped over a mould into a curve. The mould is carved out of wood, then either brass or copper is spun over it. This leaves the smallest patters, tracing a process that is beautiful to observe. The plates are the metalworkers’ canvas of painting. Oxidising, heat, acid, pigments, process, patience, getting it wrong and starting all again. Bronzing, acid and heat treatment is applied to this collection, and each plate varies slightly and intentionally.
The process of brushing, spraying, splashing and polishing results in a variety of finishes, giving each piece of Cosmic an individual touch. It is the perfect demonstration of the interaction between the material and craftsmen.
